Information on Becoming a Foster or Adoptive Family

Gus has finally found a Daddy!

Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming an Olive Crest Foster or Adoptive Family.

Olive Crest is a private, non-profit organization that serves the community by providing homes for children who are dependents of the state. These children have been taken into state custody due to abandonment, neglect and/or abuse. Therefore, the children we care for require that foster and adoptive parents be educated on the special emotional needs these children may have. We provide in home support, on-going education classes and reimbursement for the care of children. Our Foster and Fost/Adopt Parents are the primary agents of healing in the lives of the children we serve. We desire to equip our parents with the tools they need to have a positive impact on these children's lives.

Foster and Fost/Adopt Parents provide the primary care and supervision for these children. Therefore, Olive Crest Foster and Fost/Adopt Parents need to ensure a safe, nurturing and stable home environment that encourages the emotional and physical development of each child. Foster parent involvement can range from short-term care for children to adopting a child. 

Olive Crest has a 30 year history of providing care for children in need. Olive Crest was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, which are reflected in the care we provide and our treatment philosophy. While we recruit Foster and Fost/Adopt Parents from many areas of the community, we have attracted a large contingency of families from local churches. Olive Crest complies with state licensing requirements and manages each home within their guidelines.
